Currently


I picked this up on Pat Sloan's blog- patsloan.typepad.com. I thought it would be kind of fun to play along. So here is what I am:
Watching- OK- I know I am going to catch a lot of flak but I am watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Sad but true. I never, never watch reality anything but I am addicted to this. The new season just got going. It is like a bad train wreck- horrible and yet you can't look away.

Reading- I am a voracious reader! I just finished The Kitchen House and Wednesday's Sisters. I liked the Kitchen House. It deals with slavery so some of it is pretty sad but was a good story. The ending seemed rather rushed. Wednesday's Sisters was a great story of 5 women's friendships starting in the mid 1960s. I really liked this book. I am super glad I was not a woman trying to make a life and living around that time. I would have wound up in jail! It was ridiculous the way women were treated as inferior to men. Anyway there is a follow up book called Wednesday's Daughters that is next on my list.

Listening- Right now I am listening to baby kittens running up the stairs. A common sound in my house.

Making- I making quilts for fall market. I have three quilts in various stages of completion. Lots of applique.

Feeling- Sleepy. I woke up tired and have some sinus stuff going on. Gonna have to hit the caffeine hard!

Planning- I am planning my next book. As I told you it is a fall themed book. I am a fall and Halloween freak so I am really looking forward to this book. Lots of ideas floating around.

Loving- Kettle Cooked Jalapeno chips. I am seriously addicted to these. I can't let myself buy a full size bag because I will sit and eat the entire bag. It is a problem!

What are you doing?
Happy Quilting,
Dawn

Those books sound interesting. I may have to pick them up. A fall themed book would be a good addition to my quilt book collection.

How fun! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the new book .... Right now I am playing on my laptop while Walt is driving us to a show in Maryland. I think my answer to everything right now would be "18-wheeler"!
